Rhythms of Women’s Desire - How Female Sexuality Unfolds at Every Stage of Life
Author Elizabeth Davis' focus on sexual changes over time is what makes this book unique; she gives insight into what is natural at each sexual stage and how it all fits together in the context of a lifetime. This book envisages menarche (first menstruation), childbirth, and menopause as transformative, biological turning points and gives the reader a view of what these events have in common hormonally and psychologically.
The new edition has been updated to reflect the latest scientific research, including a deeper examination of post-menopausal and postpartum sexuality and the hormonal imbalances caused by xenoestrogens. Updates also include new information about the link between oxytocin, brainwaves, and intuition—and about how abortion, miscarriage, and other major losses can affect the desire for sex, with suggestions for healing and a worksheet for dealing with trauma and abuse issues.
